As part of Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District Project Clear, MSD’s Consent Decree with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Missouri Coalition for the Environment, MSD will spend $100 million in rainscaping investments over a period of 23 years, with an overall goal of reducing combined sewer overflows to the Mississippi River. The Rainscaping Large Scale Grants Program offers private landowners a per-acre reimbursement for installing green infrastructure, and through an innovative partnership with a mission-driven project developer, Greenprint Partners, MSD is able to deliver funding to institutional ratepayers located in lower-income areas of the St. Louis. These projects drive more equitable distribution of grant funds and while helping prevent combined sewer overflows.
